Anthony Froshaug was an English typographer, designer and teacher, born in London to a Norwegian father and English mother. Influenced by ideas of European modernism, particularly the work of Jan Tschichold, Froshaug is considered by some to be the most convincing exponent of modern typography in Britain.

The cover devised and thermographically printed on Matt black in coated stock. Complete with single sheet loose insert carrying biographical information on Froshaug.
